Let’s get this right out there: I am voting FOR Obama.
That is happens to be a vote against Romney is just deliciousness.
If I lived in a swing state, it might even matter.
I try to keep politics out of this blog. But it’s too important this time. (And I am so tired of keeping my mouth shut.)
While I might (and that is one very giant might) be willing to consider and discuss actual issues there is one issue that is paramount:
I get to, every woman gets to, decide what happens to her own body.
Not you. Not your religion. Not your politics.** If you don’t get that; you don’t get my vote.
If you don’t get that; I don’t trust your judgment on any other issue.
*Truth be told: I have tried to vote (early) for days but the lines are just too long. (I’m hoping Tuesday will be faster.)
**And, by the way, if you’d like to end abortion there are a variety of ways of doing this that don’t include making it illegal. (Here’s a few: Stop rape, Fund Planned Parenthood, Teach, Talk to your kids, Be Prepared …)
Because banning abortion won’t stop it; it just becomes unsafe. And then instead of preventing a problem – you’ve created two problems.
